Chattanooga Whiskey's first gin - and the 13th release in their award-winning Experimental Single Batch Series - Batch 013: Bourbon Barreled Gin utilizes their malty-rich Tennessee High Malt white whiskey for its foundation. Afterwards, a unique blend of 9 botanicals are steeped in the white whiskey overnight, prior to a final distillation. The gin is then finished in their single-use Tennessee High Malt bourbon barrels for 8 months prior to bottling. This extended process softens and sweetens the overall botanical character of the gin, while also imparting a golden hue to the spirit.
Tasting notes: Orange blossom, citrus, and juniper, with a malty-sweet finish.
